On lake Washington. At moderate speed probably 10K. Note angle of hull to water and waves coming off boat. At 16K and above there would be little change in what you see just sl larger wave form. There are trim tabs not really needed but I do use them at higher speeds usually above 11K to keep boat really flat on water. No squat and no huge bow and stern waves as is often the case with trawlers at this speed. This picture shows boat just breaking through a small set of waves the avatar picture to left is in flatter water at about 8K.

eyshulman,
A level running boat is wonderful. Not totally level .. mostly level like yours. That's a big part of what makes long and narrow good.
Sometimes a short boat (like mine) will follow the waves better bobbing her bow up and down whereas long and narrow may need to do battle w every sea.
Most of the time though I'll take the long and narrow. Costs per foot at the marina though.

Thanks FlyWright for the acknowledgement. Island Sunset is a fun boat, lots of room, and a traditional look. Darin "Moonfish" has her sister, Traveler, and we enjoy seeing them in our local waters. Lots of fun!

Not quite underway, but out having fun!

Dolphins are always great to see & be so close to.

Not that I don't value your opinions.

Here we are at the Rondy. Looks like I was yell'in at the wife but actually I was sing'in her a love song.
Dang Eric looks like we have something else in common . Suspenders !!!! ( post # 75)

Wow, this is really pitiful. We've technically owned this boat for a year and no pix yet of her underway?!? That will change this summer once the upgrades are finished. In the meantime, "underway" on land is the best I've got.

You'd need a helicopter for that shot b/c drones can't go that fast yet. I can get shots like that from a slow swinging bridge!

Was that shot taken before the retractable cockpit cover?

Al, that is a benefit of my boat being the photographic promo boat. It was taken by Billy Black who does a lot of work for Sabre. This was prior to delivery. It didn't cost me anything as I know a few people at Sabre.

Of course the satellite dome and retractable top were not on. The radar dome shown was changed out for an open array antanna. She still runs very Sweetly. You can probably see where the propeller pockets are.

By the way, when coming in the Boca Grande inlet I met Billy Black coming on his sail boat. He didn't know who I was, but knew it was a Sabre. He shot a picture. When we tied up at Boca Grande Marina, he was tied up behind us. Tapped on the boat, and got my e-mail address. He sent the picture that night. It was a misty dreary day, so didn't show well. You meet a lot of folks on the ICW.

It spent 18 years in Revelstoke, for the Forest Service, who used it as a crew/work boat to clean up the new reservoir. Then it was sold to Parks Canada who re-engined, stretched, added cargo decks, a crane and stabilizers, then it spent 5 years servicing the new Gwaii Haanas Park in the Queen Charlottes.

In between, it was privately owned and used for a yacht and dive charters. It's been to Alaska numerous times. It's outside will not be getting changed but the inside is getting "yachtier" and more comfortable although it will never be like my Grand Banks was inside. We crossed the Gulf the other day in 20-25 knot winds and 5 foot moderate seas and it was not uncomfortable. She has lots of windage and a shallow bow. Pulling up the anchor in 25 knot winds she turned 90 degrees on me before I could get from the windlass to the wheelhouse.

One thing for sure, I'll never see myself coming like Bayliner owners do!

Yes that's a great shot Al. A really nice picture but dosn't show you're boat well just because it's small in the picture. I have one a bit like that that has magnificent Alaska mountains in the background but Willy's so small you can just barely make out that it's Willy. Taken from a ferry deck and sent to me.

Taking good pics of one's boat underway is challenging or a matter of luck. I suspect Bob Cofer thought about that when he started this thread. I'm glad he did though. An idea for us is to have someone shoot us going through Decption Pass.
